SOURCE: Refrigerator trips GFI outlet

unlikely to be the defrost timer. more likely to be the defrost element. try disconnecting the element and see if it trips then. could be of course a wiring fault - frayed wires etc

Your fridge may be overheating from an electrical short causing the fridge to go into auto shutdown so that it will not catch fire. You will need to get it checked up in a shop to confirm the suspicion and to get it fixed.

SOURCE: Fridge cools for awhile then compressor cycles on and off

Not the compressor. Two reasons why. If your compressor was bad, you would not hear it at all, also the compressor would be very hot, do to the piston not moving and the shaft just moving or the liquid not turning into vapor. One way to check for sure is to take a multimeter and see your voltage. You can also touch the suction and the liquid line, if one is cold and the other is hot or warm then compressor is working ok. Also when you unplug the system and you reset everything, you are not reseting the compressor you are reset the relay

SOURCE: Amana refrigerator stopped cooling.

Have you been hearing a clicking noise coming from behind the unit? This is the first indication of a failed compressor relay. Pull the unit out and unplug it. Remove the back cover and go to the compressor. You will find a device on the side of the compressor that has the wires hooked to it. This is the compressor relay and overload. It may be under a black cap. Remove the cap to access it. It may have 2 pieces to it or it may just have the 2 pieces encased in a white and tan box. Remove this box and shake it. If it rattles like gravel in it then it is bad. If it is in 2 pieces then it will have a brown relay. This is the piece that will rattle if bad. The white and black piece with one wire is the overload. They most never go bad. Use this replacement part kit...8201786 and follow the detailed instructions included in the kit. Thanks for the question. Hope this helps.

RUNS AND QUITS


You could try replacing the ignition coil. If it's failed, then it may run ok for a few seconds, but as it heats up it fails. Trying to start again immediately will be too soon for the coil to have cooled down. Leave it a few minutes to cool down and it will run again, but only for a few seconds again.
Hope that helps

Hi samsung fridge runs fine gets to desired temp then wont kick in again until it warms up.


the fridge will run until it reaches the temp. there should be a differential of 2 degrees so when the temp rises by 2 degrees the fridge should restart so you will need to make sure the differential is set to 2 degrees celcius on controller

Jeep starts but wont stay running. changed fuel filter O2 sensor and cleaned injectors. When running it runs great. after it warms up if you can get it to run that long it runs great.


Possible electrical problem. If the module in the distibutor gets hot it will shut the vehicle down, let it cool down for about 10 min. and it starts again ?

Not cold enough. freezer works but fridge wont stay cold. i can shut it off for a day and it will work for two more. after that it quits again.


It you have a frost free fridge, then what is happening is that either the defrost element or the thermostat is faulty, causing ice to build up and block off cold air circulation to the fridge. Sometimes the frost builds up around the circulation fan and ceases it up.

That is why when you turn the fridge off for a day, the frost melts and drains out the back of your fridge and so the fridge works ok for a few days until the frost build up again.

Another thing to watch out for is the defrost timer. Sometimes they fail and stick on one cycle and dont advance through. pull your fridge out. The timer is located in the back near the compressor. There is normally a small dial on it. With the fridge turned off, you can twist the dial clockwise and you will hear the timer mechanism click through the different cycles. Make small ink mark on the timer dial. Say at 12 oclock. Turn fridge on. Chech the fridge every couple of hours and see if the mark advances through and does not get stuck in one position for lengthy periods of time. The defrost cycle should normally be around 8 hours and it repeats again.

Let me know if you need more help with the defrost element or thermostat. But it is best to get an experienced repairer to change those.

Good luck

1991 lesabre wont start after shutting down. If it sits a few hours starts up great again. changed plugs, plug wires, coil pack, and Ignition control module but still same problem. ran a little rough but...


Best to do a fuel pressure test, pump might be weak and dosent show up until it gets gets warm. Best to do the test after it quits again when pump is at its hottest. If you havent done it yet chg. fuel filter too.

Fridge not staying cold


did you let the fridge stay in it's new place for 24 hours up right before turning it on?
Try turning it off for at least 24 hours and start it back up again.
If you moved it on its side the compressor oil flows into the lines and must beable to drain back down before using it.
If not you'll seeze the compressor.
not good.

Problem has returned to Maytag fridge


I note this is a very old post. The compressor is not starting and what you were hearing was the PTC relay energizing followed by the KilXon thermal overload kicking off the compressor start sequence. What happens is that the PTC relays sometimes get a heated contact. Due to the weakened state of the contact it can cause a buzz. Even with a goo PTC relay you would hear the compressor buzz if it was not starting. In that case the run capacitor may have failed or the compresor rotor is internally locked at which point the start cycle will repeat every 3 to 4 minutes as the thermal overload cycles and the compressor will not start.

Thanks for choosing FixYa
